The Eight Mountains



Life and circumstances sometimes come between two men who were raised in the Italian Alps, but they remain friends over many decades.

Patience is rewarded when watching "The Eight Mountains"; audience members need to slow themselves and attend to the call of the mountains where time is counted off by seasons. What emerges in the sweeping landscape is a touching and meaningful story of profound friendship. We learn that 'nature' is an abstraction only used by city folks - when you live as a part of the environment you call it a lake, a tree, a path, more of a living experience than a concept. Magic emerges in this cinematically exquisite effort where nothing needs exaggerating. A peak experience.
